DIA to hold meeting on upcoming National Media Exploitation Center acquisition
On behalf of the Defense Intelligence Agency, the Virginia Contracting Activity posted a notice on August 8 announcing a technical exchange meeting about the DOMEX data cloud platform. The registration deadline is 10:00am EST on August 26, and the technical exchange meeting will take place on August 31.
The purpose of this Technical Exchange Meeting (TEM) is to provide industry with an opportunity to learn about an upcoming National Media Exploitation Center (NMEC) acquisition and suggest feedback on the draft documents. Contractors are encouraged to provide concrete recommendations that will assist the Government in improving performance standards, clarifying requirements and scope of task areas along with identifying potential gaps. Vendors are encouraged to provide feedback referencing the draft documents posted on FedBizOpps.
At the Technical Exchange Meeting, the Government will explain the requirements and contracting staff will address milestones and instructions for the upcoming solicitation process.
The primary goal of NMEC is to make DOMEX information collected (i.e. data), including metadata and content, discoverable and retrievable by DOMEX and Intelligence Community (IC) consumers through the Intelligence Community Information Technology Environment (IC ITE) and NMEC-controlled networks and domains. To achieve this goal, NMEC requires a highly secure, available, fault-tolerant, scalable, upgradeable, re-configurable, supportable, maintainable, and interoperable platform to: (1) ingest, process, and store the wide variety and high volume of document and media information collected (i.e. data); (2) securely share this data with other applications and systems hosted by IC ITE through D3P data (web) services; and (3) provide highly usable and interactive applications for DOMEX and IC Consumers to dynamically discover and retrieve DOMEX data and information.
This requirement is anticipated to be a 100% small business set-aside. The period of performance is expected to be a base plus four option years. The anticipated award date may be in the second quarter of FY17.
